Overview:

DoGood’s Virtual Boardroom sessions convene a panel of thought leaders who participate in an interactive dialogue covering a range of timely and strategic topics. For this Virtual Boardroom, produced in partnership with Armis, we’re pleased to welcome a panel of experts who will discuss topics including but not limited to:

  • What tools are being used to collect asset inventory data across the entire enterprise?
  • Is it possible today to get complete visibility into every device, every cloud instance, and every application version in use across an entire environment? If so, how accurate is that data?
  • Across that spectrum, is it possible to identify which devices in an environment are affected by the new vulnerabilities or security advisories that appear overnight?
  • How are asset inventory gaps impacting incident response?  How is this affecting overall business risk?

The discussions are recorded and our membership can request a copy of the discussion by using the form on this page.
